Turin Guided Walking Tour

Tour Description.

Meet your friendly guide in Piazza San Carlo, an elegant place aptly nicknamed the “living room” of Turin. Learn about the history of the square that dates back to 1619 while admiring the intricate architecture of the surrounding buildings. Next, pass by the Porto Palazzo market on the way to the imposing Porta Palatina, one of the best-preserved first-century B.C.E. Roman gates in the world.

Continue the tour to the imposing Cathedral of St. John the Baptist, Turin’s main Catholic place of worship. Located in the square of the same name, the cathedral was built in the late 15th century and is the city’s only religious building in the Renaissance style. I then arrive at Piazza Castello, a large esplanade that is the true center of Turin. As you explore, admire the dazzling Palazzo Madama and the majestic Royal Palace.

Follow your guide to Piazza Carignano, one of the most important and historic squares in Piedmont’s capital city. Dating back to the city’s Savoy era, the square boasts a fascinating monument honoring Vincenzo Gioberti, about whom you will learn from your guide. The tour ends at one of the city’s most iconic monuments, the Mole Antonelliana. Built in 1863 and 167 meters high, the tower was initially a place of worship for Turin’s Jewish community before being sold to the municipality in 1877. Today the tower houses the fabulous collections of the National Cinema Museum.
